The lights are on
Confused about continuity? Want to start your own Marvel vs. DC superhero war? Head on in to pick apart storylines, books, artists, authors, and much more. The superhero registration line starts here.
@Cameron: Hmm, definitely check with them but there are shipping delays and what have you regularly with comics so it may not be out yet.
My pull list
Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit.
Yeah but there had to have been an april issue, and its may now.
Scratch that, I guess it never came out, I know comics can have shipping delays, but a month? Thats a long time.
Turns out Trinity War is not actually the DC event of 2013. in September it is "Villain's Month", where every series gets taken over by a villain (Batman's is Joker, JLA's is Deadshot, Green Arrow's is Count Vertigo etc.) and has a .1 added to it's numbering with a moving-picture cover. Also starting in September is the actual event, called "Forever Evil", which focuses on the villains of the DCU. FE will be a 5 issue (I think) limited series written by Geoff Johns and drawn by David Finch. There will also be tie-in series focusing on specific villains (one is based on Batman's, one is based on Flash's etc.)
During the course of the event, Matt Kindt will be taking over JLA for 5 issues centered on Martian Manhunter.
I think it sounds promising.
Great, now Marvel AND DC are doing two events this year. And on a related note, I picked up Aquaman #19 and Nightwing #20.
Peaceful Days died, Let's Survive
@Gaming Warthog: I haven't read Aquaman #19 yet but I have been pleased with the last three or so issue of Nightwing (which have taken place in Chicago). His story's better now that he's out from the shadow of the Bat.
@Warthog: I think Trinity War is actually more of a high-profile crossover, like DotF or Wrath of the First Lantern or Rotworld. But to be honest, I'm a little biased in DC's favor
@Warthog: On DC: I give the highest possible reccomendation for Batman. I also reccomend (based on popular opinion) Wonder Woman, Swamp Thing, and Animal Man, even though I have never read them myself (but plan on doing so).
@Queso: Yes, I've heard that Nightwing is doing much better in his new Chicago setting.
Why did they choose Chicago? Why not one Keystone, or center city or that other one that I forget?
yeah DC has like, 8 different versions of New York

Probably because they didn't have anyone in Chicago.
@Cameron: Yeah, I was going to drop it but it has gotten better since the crap Dotf stuff ended. I'll be on board for the immediately foreseeable future.
@FAMESREVENGE: Not sure why they chose Chicago but I like it. It's a nice change from dismal Gotham. Granted, a plot point has taken Tim there but I don't wanna spoil anything.
@Chaos: That never dawned on me.
@Cameron, they dont have anyone in Minneapolis but that isn't a good reason to put a character there. I would like to see the characters appear in each other cities is all. Marvel uses New York and stuff and that is honestly boring to me, I dont give a rip about New York, or Chicago or any other city. I do give a rip about gotham and metropolis, and it would be cool is center and coastal and keystone cities (is that the one I am thinking about?) had more of a presence in the universe.
Gotham = New York
Metropolis = Boston
Center City = Chicago
Coastal City = L.A. or one of those west coast towns
Keystone City = Let's say St. Louis, just for fun.
Except Gotham can't be in New Jersey. Just no.
